If you listen to audiobooks in the car, prepare to find yourself sitting in the driveway with this one. Julia Whelan does a near flawless job delivering this palpitation-inducing psychological thriller from the great Dennis Lehane. She's good at accents, switching ages and genders, and her pacing is impeccable. Rachel Childs, the only child of a beautiful, very smart, very damaged mother, is looking for her father, whose identity she never knew. Always a great setup, but Lehane is using it as a springboard to explain how Rachel falls into a totally different swamp of deceptions. Whelan struggles with pronouncing "atheneum," and someone "demured" at one point instead of demurring, or this performance would be a bases-loaded home run. Maybe is anyway.
